This year we have 3 different race courses to reduce course congestion: 5k Run, 5k Walk, and 10k Run. 5k Runners will have a different course than the 5k Walkers. You will be asked at Race Kit Pick Up if you will be running or walking the 5k. If you are going to walk and run (combined) please go in the 5k Run group.
Suggested Arrival Time: 7:45 a.m.
To have the most enjoyable race day experience, please give yourself plenty of time before your race. Factor in timing for: getting to the event site, parking, toilet use (which may include wait time), getting into your start corral, deep breathing and getting into your groove! Note: There will be no event day registration.
Participant parking is located in the Edmonton Zoo parking lot, at the back, nearest the Run for Women event site. There is also parking in the grass lot on 132 St NW. To enter the grass lot, follow the round-about off Buena Vista Road NW to the 3rd exit. Both areas are self-park.
Please bring all cash/cheque donations to the Lois Hole Hospital for Women tent at the race, along with a pledge form and provide it to a Lois Hole Hospital for Women on-site representative.
